How to Open a Liquor Store

Some of the fundamental requirements when it comes to opening a liquor store include: completing all paperwork, choosing what kind of store you want to set up (franchise, self-owned, or part of another store,) acquire a list of licensed liquor suppliers, and setting up security measures for your shop.

Liquor stores aren’t as easy to start like most other businesses.

Surprisingly, before you can even sell one bottle of liquor on your premises, you have to deal with cases upon cases of paperwork. Yes, paperwork – meaning you have to do lots of legwork on your own. If it is feasible, you need to retain the services of a lawyer to help you work out some fundamental issues of this business like contracts and zoning issues.

Like all things legal, you need to inquire about the all federal laws, state laws, city laws and county restrictions, not to mention zoning laws in your vicinity. A good lawyer can save you a lot of time and effort when deciphering these laws, and he can point you in the right direction should zoning issues about your liquor store become problematic. You need to find out also when you can actually sell liquor to your patrons. Different states, cities and counties have different restrictions as to the time any liquor store in their jurisdiction can sell their products. Non-compliance to the laws is considered a criminal offense.

If hiring a lawyer is not an option as of yet, then at the very least, you have to research all about liquor restrictions via the Internet before actually investing time and money into the venture. However, it should be stressed that hiring the service of a competent lawyer is really necessary when you are opening your own liquor store. If all systems seem to be working in your favor, you then must acquire your licenses and permits for your business – and these should be prominently displayed in your store at all times.

Your second option is choosing what kind of liquor store you actually want to set up. Establishing your own store under a name you have chosen for yourself is one option. Buying a franchise for an earlier established liquor store is another option. Setting up a part of a shop (say a small grocery store) with a few supplies of liquor is another option. Choosing from one of these three options is involves many things like budget, space and location, to name a few. One of the perks of buying a franchise is that the franchising office actually gives you a list of their liquor suppliers.

If however, you should decide to “wing it,” your next viable step is to get a list of suppliers for your liquor. This course of action also ends up with a pile of paperwork, and it would benefit you greatly to know all about alcohol beverage laws for retailers and licensee responsibilities. You cannot under any circumstance just buy liquor anywhere because there will periodic checks made by Alcohol and Tobacco Enforcement Agency. You also need to keep receipts from your sales and other invoices should the agents or police ask for them during these checks. Non-compliance to the Agency and its representatives can be considered as a misdemeanor.

You also have to consider the safety of your store personnel and the security of your liquor store. Liquor stores are, without a doubt, one of the most targeted stores for crime – you need to consider with utmost care on how you are to protect your investment. Installing high-tech gadgetry and posting security personnel in and around your store are options you may want to enforce, but vigilance is always the key to thwarting those who are most likely to attempt a hold-up or outright thievery.

    Q: Are the laws regarding opening a liquor store in New York different from that of other places?
    - One thing is for sure: you would need a license to operate a liquor store. Regarding actual selling, yes. For example, sale of beer in grocery stores is allowed, whereas wine and distilled spirits are not. In some states, these are all allowed for sale in grocery stores. Find the State specific norms before putting everything in a business plan.

    Q: Where can I obtain laws regarding operating a liquor business?
    - Since the sale of alcoholic beverages is a heavily regulated activity throughout the country, states have agencies that regulate how businesses conduct their trade. In New York, there is the State Liquor Authority.

    Before you open, make sure you have a good computerized cash register (pos system). A good one is about $3000 but you'll make it up in time with less inventory shrinkage, better employee management.

    For those looking to buy a liquor store, you can search for liquor stores for sale or any business by area on BizBuySell.com or Bizquest.com.

    For those asking about liquor licenses, go to your city government offices and request to fill out an application for a liquor license. These can be costly and can take some time to be approved/declined.

    Your best bet is to purchase an existing business instead of starting from scratch, that way the clientele is established and you don't have to mess around with a liquor license (it's already in place!).

    I thought about opening a liquor store and got a lot of info from the business license office. They said I would have to hire someone to survey where I wanted to open a store to make sure I wasn't close to any schools, churches, other stores.... I then would have to get other businesses to ok me to open my business (in writing) and then to get my business license I had to get it approved by city council. I also called one local supplier and the man I spoke with said I could start with a minimum of $100,000 but if I wanted to be competitive and successful that he would recommend starting with a minimum of $250,000. he also said I would have to use different supplier because there was only one supplier in town that could sell Jack Daniels and it wasn't them, and some only sold wine. He also suggested a few areas that would be better to open a store. He was very helpful. I learned a lot but never opened a store, mainly because of all the "red tape". But good luck to all of you who are successful in your endeavors!

    We had trouble at getting customers at first and then tried advertising. Location is really important. If you don't have a good location try running ads in your paper or radio or one of the new media things geared to liquor stores like Liquor Run Mobile. It's an iphone app that tells people how to find your store (www.liquorrunmobile.com). Helped us a lot.

    Thanks EVERYONE for your posts. We had a tough time at first, and every bit of info we can glean from the web is helping. This is a TON of work, but worth it. Everyone, make sure you are getting customers at first, that was more important for us than getting the liquor license, dealing with distributors etc. I agree with Rae L; Liquor Run Mobile is a great way to advertise. It's dirt cheap and they send us a report of how many people come to the store every week from the app. Go to their web site. other than that, we've had good luck with college newspapers. Our location sucks, so we have to advertise to make it happen. Julia & Randy

    Hello everyone, I have managed to operate the liquor store for almost 4 years. I've started from the ground up. I've leased the space in the shopping strip mall when it was just the beams and framing. First things first. Forget about vacation!!! You have to be in the store everyday. If you don't micromanage the store. You will not make it. The profit margins are low. In my city I've manged to make 30% profit margin average. This is high in the city. Most of other stores are only 20% in that. Why competition! Most customers are paying by debit card or credit cards which means that your merchant processing fees will be high really high not high fees. Why because the amount of transactions dollars are high. The utility bill is high due to walk in cooler. expect to pay over $1000 on electric bills. The rent, insurance, alarm monitoring service, phone bills, water bills, trash bills, wages, sales tax, city, county and state beer, wine, malt beverages and liquor license fees, business license, tobacco license fees and more. I work everyday 6 days a week. From 10am to 10pm Mon-Th and 10am - 11:30pm Fri and Sunday. I'll cut it short. The bottom line is that you can not make profit if your profit margin is set low. If you do you won't make money. If you DO NOT have enough start up capital don't even start. It is very difficult to make it if you have takeout a loan from the bank. Think about it the bank note on the loan and all those fees and bills plus your wages and your employees.... Lastly what kills in this business is that if you sold 6 bottles of Jack Daniels 750ml, you can not reorder 6 bottles. You have to at minimum order a case. So if you sell 2 bottles here 3 bottles there and so on... you have to buy 1 case of each items. For me because of the competitions I have to buy deals meaning 5 or 10 cases of certain items your price will be much lower than buying a single case. As much as $3 per bottles. Now how are you going to compete with me when I'm selling $3 lower that you on the identical item. Ok if anyone have any questions email me. I will try to answer any questions. Good Luck everyone. Arm yourself with knowledge.

    Q: How do liquor selling laws differ by states? State laws differ in their control of beer, wine and distilled spirits. Grocery stores may or may not carry one or all of these depending on where it is located. The time that sale of alcoholic drink on-premises and off-premises may be allowed also differ by states. So does minimum purchase age. In most alcohol beverage control states, only the government runs specialty liquor stores. Only a few sell alcoholic beverages in all types of stores.

    Q: Are there lawyers in New York city that specializes in helping businesses open a liquor store? The Law Office of Stacy L. Weiss http://www.stacyweisslaw.com/ is known for its liquor licensing service in New York. One law firm, based in Seattle that is actively practicing in the liquor law is Puget Sound, Miller Malone & Tellefson (http://www.mmtlawfirm.com/). It also serves the states of Washington and California. Liquor law firms help alcoholic beverage distributors and producers get or packaging and represent them before the Liquor Authority Board.

    Q: What are the procedures and licenses required to open a liquor store? It will depend on which state you are opening a liquor store.

  • 60. Thumper said on 4/8/2010 9:49:42 PM
    We purchased a liquor store last October. My first suggestion before you begin to buy is to thoroughly check out the prior owner, take their word on nothing. In Texas, you have to apply for your license through the TABC. They can also give most of the information on the prior owner that you might need to know. Check with all distributors as to whether prior owner has outstanding bills due. If so, then part of the inventory they are trying to sell you along with the store, technically is not theirs to sell, since they haven't paid for it. Ours is a Mom and Pop shop, so our inventory is limited. We make sure to carry everything our regulars ask for as they are what keeps us going. We try to keep up with trends and keep a few new items in stock. But you can't carry everything or order too many new items on a regular basis as you will eat up any potential profit. We started our store with $25,000. Ideally, $50,000 would have been better. Try to buy by the case if possible. If you can afford it, buy more than one case of good sellers, the more you buy the better the price and the bigger your profit. Our distributors will charge a per bottle charge, as much as $3.00 per bottle, if we break a case. Know your customers names if they are regulars, read the local paper and notice if there are weddings or new babies in your clients lives and be sure to mention it to them. People love to talk about themselves.

    I wish to open a Liquor shop in NYC. I have gone through the ABC website regarding licensing procedure. I even spoke to them on phone, I am eligible for getting a license. They have explained to me about the self certification process. I would be thankful if anyone could give me some idea of some about the capital required to set up. I my try to locate a suitable store in NYC, what kind of rent $$ would make sense for Liquor store? What would be the initial cost to get a license? What would typical cost of furniture and fitting for a small to medium sized liquor store? For a start up store, what kind of inventory would be required in terms of $$. I read on the internet that more we buy, the better margins we would get? Is it true that there is around 25% to 30% returns in the Liquor business in NYC? Is 750 sq feet a reasonable size store including the storage space or do we need more space?

    Any one stating a new liquor store in NY, i would suggest that if you looking to start make sure you have enough space for it. 7500sq ft is nothing. you will need at least 2000-3000 sq feet if you really wants to good. then you will probably need 125,00 to 250,00 to start up and make sure the rent is not too much.

I would be thankful if anyone could give me some idea of some about the capital required to set up. What would be the initial cost to get a license? What would typical cost of furniture and fitting for a small sized liquor store? For a start up store, what kind of inventory would be required in terms of $$. I read on the internet that more we buy, the better margins we would get? Is it true that there is around 25% to 30% returns in the Liquor business in NYC? Is 450 sq feet a reasonable size store including the storage space or do we need more space? Thanks.

The other location would have about 2000 square feet and would also be a good location. Just feel the 1200 is too small. How much cash(roughly) is needed for the for the inventory (2000 sqft)? Also, what are employees paid in a wine and spirits store? Thanks for any info.

    This article was not written by a person who has ever owned a liquor store. I have been in the industry for over 15 years and own a liquor store. The first thing is paperwork? Of course there is. How about we start with location, business plan, financing, understanding the basics of opening any business - not just a liquor store. Fully understand things like gross profit versus net profit. Don't read an article to open a business. If needed, hire a consultant or better yet go work at the business for a few months. Don't do it just because you like wine. Good luck.

    This is a good article, but makes the process a little more intimidating than it really is. I am 23 years old and I opened my liquor store on June 11th in Missouri. We're coming up on being open for two months now and its been quite successful. The paperwork was super easy, as long as you have a clean record and the city approves of having another liquor outlet, the state and county licenses are no problem. I started up with about $65,000 in inventory, but that is already growing just with basic customer requests. Our first full month in business which was July, we were already profitable. What I mean by that is, after you take off the cost of inventory, which will range from 75-80 percent, we were left with $7100 to pay bills and expenses, after all bills paid, including my personal salary, I had $1300 left over.

    People who want to open liquor store need to know following things if they want to be successful..opening a liquor store in big cities like NYC or any big cities can be challenging..It requires tons of money and resources..People(competitors) who own liquor store in these big city will not let you be successful because they know the business, ppl, trend, and have capital to compete. Typical liquor store in Big city in tri-states ranges from 1million to 10 million dollars..if you go to small cities your cost is 5 times less..$100k is nothing for liquor store..Biggest obstacles in acquiring a license in big city is zoning regulations..The place you have in mind may never get permit for liquor store..I own a liquor store and I keep my eyes open for my area..If license available then I will be the first one to approach..I know how to deal with everything and I will make sure that new guy won't be successful..sorry this is true way of liquor business.. Start small and make your way upward..Rome was not build overnight..but it was built.

    My brother and I are 24 & 25 years old aspiring entrepreneurs. We are focused on buying an existing liquor store in the Dallas/Fort-worth, TX area. Ideally, we are looking for an owner to seller finance. Are credit is very limited, in fact, one of us has never established credit. We do have 15,000 dollars cash. My question is, what type of impact will 15,000 dollars have? Is this enough to get the process rolling and one step closer to our dream?

    I am currently opening a liquor store...Have a partner who just sold one as well...You will need a business license and a Liquor retail license. Also, you just cannot go and set one up anywhere. laws exist about how far from schools etc... Also, what we are doing is opening up a boutique of sorts...We have friends who are in this arena and know the top sellers of wines and liquors. Since we do not want to get started as a lightweight and both want to make serious money, we are investing 75k each into inventory to give us 150k on inventory. Again that is only inventory. Then we are splitting the FFEs...That is your racks, desks, computers, coolers, etc. Where we are located, not too many people buy kegs so there is no need for us to have a walking. Look at your demographics for this as well as your clientele. If you are near a college, you need kegs, if you are in a upscale neighborhood, you need fine wine and liquors. We will do fine with door coolers and will use that for selected top sellers. I guess after all said and done, we will have 200k in this investment. With that said, we don't have alot of the red tape like in FL or other areas where liquor licenses are sold out and are held on to as an investment. We can obtain them for minimal fees. Also you will need both a lawyer and an accountant in on this. You need protection! You will also need a high tech POS system. This will track your sales and what you are selling. If you are selling high volume, then buy lots of cases. You most likely should not take any profit out of the store for at least 6 months. All of your profits should go right back into purchasing more inventory. Again...This is us and not you. I plan on making a significant income from my investment and if you don't you should not start. This is long hours, lots of numbers etc. During your startup, with your new employees on board, you should take inventory of your SHELVES every other day. If you are missing bottles, do it daily and check your employees bags at the door. People will steal from you and if you think I am wrong, ask any other liquor store owner. Also, you do not stand a chance at the liquor store business if you don't have a significant inventory of fine wines. This will set you apart from grocery stores etc... Also Social Media is your key! Facebook Facebook Facebook! Create a neat upscale appearance in your store and people will pay for your products and the social media will put that appearance in their faces daily. Your reps will give you prizes etc to give away. I hope all of this will help any others! We are opening in two months! Wish us luck! kylepenland@yahoo.com if you want to email me.
